One of the most scoring subject in Civil services exam is the Indian Polity. Frequently asked topics relate to Preamble, Fundamental rights, Fundamental duties, Directive Principles of State Policy, President, Parliament and Panchayati Raj. But just the broad reading is not enough, you need to analyze each word, each statement to understand the deeper meaning.
Here, KPS Indian Polity book for Prelims will help you do that same thing. We have broken down each topic into sub – headings, which are then broken down into detailed points. The benefit of reading in point form is that you can read them as a statement which can be given in the exam.
For practice, we have also included 300+ MCQs at the end with detailed explanation to help you analyze the type of questions being asked in the exam along with the explanation as to why a statement is right or wrong.
We recommend you to read and revise all the topics and MCQs given in book.
Students often complaint of not understanding the history. We know many of you hated history in school and would run away from it if you could. But the reality is, you need to study for it to score good. In 2021, Punjab PCS surprised all its candidates by asking south India history questions (they were not listed in the syllabus). Other than that, every year UPSC asks around 7-12 questions just from Ancient and Medieval India. The questions range from political situations to societal issues to economic issues.
We have properly classified each and every information being asked or that can be asked into sections and written them in point form. This makes history learning easy. The last thing that we do suggest is to read and revise history again and again as it takes 4-5 readings to get the sense of history and to remember the points.
